I wanted to try making a hoodie for my daughter & finally found this recipe. I had my daughter choose the colors it would be, so she picked purple, hot pink, gun metal & yellow. It is almost done & she asks me every day if I have finished it yet.

As much as I LOVE my children, I would never make this hoodie again. As a first, there were to many pieces to seperately make and sew…

I was bound and determined to make this though because I wanted to challenge myself, there are a few things I see wrong(I don’t think I’m alone with seeing flaws of somethig you’ve made).. I wish I would have sewn the top snap buttons on like I did the other ones because it doesn’t have the right “close” to it and the front panels aren’t even with the rows knitted, but I digress.

Here you have my amazingly cute daughter with a new sweater!


This has held up really well and has now been passed down to Baylei.
